Digital short Saturday Trestle Press Spring Submission Winner Jeffrey Martin House of Misery

Yesterday I had the privilege of announcing the first winner in the Trestle Press Spring Submission Contest: Jeffrey Martin for House of Misery. Serious stuff and it is an intense read. More on that in a bit. The contest winners will be announced at different times during the week on my blogtalk show The G-ZONE until we reach the conclusion on or around the 15th of April. The submissions were many. They varied in style and substance, and were all together amazing. My experience…

Digital short Saturday Laurie Bowler Across the City Carnage

 

The stories just keep pouring out of Laurie Bowler. As I am writing this post she is releasing The Depths of Darkness, a full length novel (I will be posting on that next week). She also has Across the City, the fourth chapter in the continuing saga ready to edit. I already have the cover done for that bad boy and will put it up on Facebook after I put this post up. Hopefully you will like the cover art. Laurie will be my guest again in April on The G-ZONE, my blogtalk radio show.…

Digital short Saturday Tom Sumner All I Wanted was a Haircut Volume two

 

For those of you that didn’t tune in on Monday to my blogtalk radios show The G-ZONE, shame on you. Okay, maybe you had something to do, but you can at least listen to it on the archive, who knows maybe you will find another author you find interesting. The reason I am pointing this out is this: Tom gave me a new insight into how and why he writes. I found his answers to my questions compelling as well as very telling and it helped me to appreciate his hard work even more. Here is…

Almost Done!

Received news from my illustrator today that he is almost finished with the drawings for "My Angel in a Doggy Suit".  Hopefully it will be on Amazon and in bookstores soon.  "I'm Happy to be Me" is going strong and I am enjoying reading it for all the kids in the school system I work for.  Oh Oh Oh...just finished "I Used to Be Mean" and that should be rolling forward quickly.  So much to do and so little time to do it, but man oh man it is fun!

First paragraph of Butler's next adventure



  We've begun writing.  Just came up with this scene to open the book.. What do you think?





It was not their fault, really.  Well, mostly not.  Matthew Butler, Tommy Cooper, and the little dog Jack emerged from Mobile Bay like Swamp Thing II, their powder blue tuxedos dripping with mud and rotted weeds.  On the expansive lawn in front of them sat three hundred fifty close friends and relatives, dressed in their Sunday best.  A murmur ran through the crowd.  The bride, an… Continue

ChickendoodleWhereAreYou.yolasite.com

It's a beautiful day and a little cool here in Arkansas.  I have been trying to get a lot of things done and

put away all that paperwork we all end up with  that we don't use everyday but just can't throw away.

 

Also, been busy creating a website for my book Chickendoodle! Where Are You?  I wanted everyone to be able

to get a feel of the story and be able to see a few pictures from the book.  At the website,…

Beth Solheim Outwitted

Busy, busy, busy. I want to thank everyone for their kind words and support for the work I have been doing with various cover art projects, logo art and posting lately. It has meant a lot to me and helped propel me forward. Tomorrow I get the honor of announcing the first winner in the Trestle Press Spring Submission Contest on my blogtalk radio show The G-ZONE.  It is an honor and also a blast to be a part of this.

Sibella Giorello The Mountains Bow Down

It is hump day, Wednesday, for those of us not keeping count. The end of the week for me is just 5 short days away. Wait, then a new week starts again. I need a vacation! Our main character in the novel tried that and her work followed her. Does that mean when I get to take a few days off, some novels, digital short stories and graphic novels are going to follow me? I hope so! The beach wouldn’t be the same without them. Fortunately when work follows me on vacation, I love it and get to…

John Locke Follow The Stone

 

It is Monday and as such I am staring a seriously long and fun week ahead. The posting schedule I have set up for this week and next is chock full of great novels, digital shorts, self-published authors and graphic novels. The Scoop is counting down to its 500th post in just about a year in business. We are, to say the least, very proud of this achievement. I want to thank all the readers, followers, social network friends, authors & bloggers that have read our posts as well…

Digital short Saturday Big Daddy Abel Open Mic Volume Two

Humor comes in many different forms. Yesterday I touched on Tom Sumner’s All I Wanted Was a Haircut. His brand of humor is a bit different from BDA (I need to save keystrokes here people, so from now on through this post I am going to refer to Big Daddy Abel as BDA), all of it in good way. Besides that, I needed to lighten the mood today from my earlier post on Laurie Bowler’s Across the City Chapter Two. There is no bloodletting or vampires in BDA’s Open Mic Volume Two, hopefully that…

Digital short Saturday Laurie Bowler Across The City Chapter Two

 

Is it actually Saturday? Yes, today I have it right and all has been restored to its proper order. Now if I could only figure out what to with all the body parts lying around, figuratively of course, from this digital short. Seriously, back up the truck because what goes on in these virtual pages won’t fit into a normal pickup truck. If you enjoy buckets of blood with a side order of severed limbs and vampire organs, then you have come to the right digital short story. Pull up a…

Digital short Saturday ( on Friday no Less) Tom Sumner All I Wanted Was A Haircut!

 

Being the smart guy I am, I needed to look up the word sublime in the dictionary. The results of that inquiry are as follows: Under verb used without an object: to convert (a solid substance) by heat into a vapor. I do this very well; ask those that are around me. I decided to read on, I figure why not I am on a roll: and as an adjective: complete, absolute, utter and haughty. The last one sounds like it is an interpretation from England. So in conclusion, to use the word sublime…

Digital short Saturday ( on Friday no less) The Smoking Gun Sisiterhood Chapter Two, Cops and Robbers

TGIF to all! Change of plans and pace a bit as I have a back log of posts and digital short stories to talk about and thus the Saturday on Friday thing and then we will still have a Saturday on Saturday thing so instead of graphic novels today we will have the digital shorts in their place if you are following me at all. Nonetheless, here is the deal to make this short and more readily understandable, basically in a nutshell and to cut to the chase: today is Graphic Novel Friday, but in its…
